    Bon Ami kitchen cleaner.

    Griot's sells a "glass polish" that works also.

    I would suggest the glass specific clay bar available from Griot's Garage!!

    I have had pretty good results from a product called Weiman Glass top cleaner. It's actually used to clean glass top
    ranges in the kitchen. It goes on like a liquid wax, hazes over, then you buff it out. Use it sparingly.

    Bon Ami is one of the least abrasive kitchen cleaners. Seems to work great on glass - just don't rub it on the paint!
